A fan who was arrested while proclaiming his love for Madonna near her New York City apartment has been told to stay at least 10 blocks away.

A judge made that a condition as he set bail at $20,000 for Robert Linhart.

The 59-year-old retired firefighter was arrested last month.

Authorities said he scrawled messages of adoration for the Crazy for You and Material Girl singer outside her apartment building near Manhattan's Central Park.

Linhart's lawyer said the messages weren't threatening - just signs of being a fan.

A grand jury declined to indict Linhart on graffiti charges.

He pleaded not guilty to resisting arrest and weapons possession. Authorities said he had a knife and ice pick.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
